And dealt patiently when it returned.
On Easter Eve, I decided it was time for a few new baskets. How come my best creative moments are always at midnight the night before something? So there I was... stitching cotton laundry cord into the wee hours- completely enthralled! I made a total of 4 baskets. Two minis, a medium (filled with eggs above) and a large.
Creative Bug has a great workshop by Nicole Blum on how to make rope baskets right here. But I must admit, I haven't watched more than the intro yet and just winged it- something I think Nicole would totally relate too, as an artist who also loves to improvise! But for many, careful instructions makes producing something new much less stressful- so go check it out! Since I made these up as I went along, they kept improving, and I got more inspired with each new basket. This spiral sewing is addictive beyond belief.
More pics tomorrow!
